As you can see, quite a few of them have sprouted and come through the soil. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not yet, because I do not have much of a green thumb, but it is fun to watch them grow. I have also been warping them somewhat. They are on my TV, which is at an angle to the window and they keep turning to the sunlight in the window. Every morning I turn the pot the other direction and make them re-angle (is that a word) to the other direction. I find this quite humorous. I get a good kick out of it. Anna is loving watching them grow and wishing I wouldn't make it a little bit of science everyday. LOL!! She knows her plant parts. Now, we need them to grow buds so i can teach her a new part and so I know that we will actually get flowers out of my pansy seeds. I can't wait and I will keep you posted!!

We were not allowed any explanations or captions, just the photo, but since this isn't a contest on my blog, here goes. Anna was playing in her room one day, in 2004 and we all of a sudden couldn't hear her anymore. This was what we found when we went in.
I also had another photo I liked, but we were only allowed one. Here is another one:
Of course, these are old photo's. I am having a harder time capturing the "aww" moments as she gets older. Its hard to believe that my baby girl is 7 and a 1/2. Unbelievable. She is growing up so fast. Anyhow, those were my "aww" moments. There are a lot more, but I think you might get bored!! Gave a good weekend. God bless.

We will be doing school today. We have taken off so many days and I am now at a point that I want first grade done. We have about 4 weeks left or so and that includes working through on some Fridays. When we finish, we will probably do a play day or a special days somewhere to celebrate for Anna's sake. I will also make sure she gets her certificate of promotion and she "officially" moves on to second grade.
Not much else is new. Just trying to make it through the days. Take care all and talk soon. God bless.

Anyhow, other than that I have been trying to get my house cleaned to reasonable. It has been down right horrible, but I am sure it needs to be cleaned, so I started yesterday and did some cleaning, today I will do some more and some more tomorrow and Wednesday. Today's chore is to tackle all the dishes, clean the stove and sweep and mop the kitchen. Tomorrow I will clean the bathroom from top to bottom and mop the floor in there. Wednesday, I plan to clean the entry and vacuum the carpet. We just have gotten to a point where I can't handle the house. I just hope that I can handle the cleaning without suffering a lot of pay back. (I usually do, but the house is gross.)
I'm about to freecycle a bunch of stuff too. I tried to sell some of it, but I really at this point want it out of my house. A trip to Goodwill may be in my future to get this stuff out.
OK, better get started with the day. We also have school today and will have about 4 more weeks left, unless something happens and we need to go longer again. (I hope not, but I'm not holding my breath.) Have a good week all. Take care and thanks for all the prayers again.
